Артисты: Gunther & Sunshine Girls
Behind the name "Günther" stands Mats Söderlund from Malmö. Günther is a parody of the 80's style and especially the German 80's. He's singing in English with a German accent. He wears a moustache, hair style of the 80's and nasty sunglasses. In the video to the disco hit Ding Dong Song he's tempting after the choir girls (The Sunshine Girls) and is singing with an excessively dark and erotical voice things like "Oh, you touch my Tralala". The song was an unbacked big hit and took the first place on the single chart. It also had some success abroad, reached #3 in Ireland and #8 in Norway.
